Centered on a rare interview that director and friend Tamra Davis shot with Basquiat over twenty years ago, this definitive documentary chronicles the meteoric rise and fall of the young artist.

“A profoundly moving testament to an artist and to the gritty New York of the early 80s.”

–Linda Yablonsky, The New York Times


“Davis’s deeply felt profile. Her interviews, essential and well-chosen, instantly vault the film to the top level of intimacy. The movie is key.”

–Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
